Add proportion decisions


Add a proportion decision to a conservation planning problem. This is a relaxed decision where a part of a planning unit can be prioritized, as opposed to the entire planning unit. Typically, this decision has the assumed action of buying a fraction of a planning unit to include in decisions will solve much faster than problems that use binary-type decisions.





problem() object.


Conservation planning problems involve making decisions on planning units. These decisions are then associated with actions (e.g., turning a planning unit into a protected area). Only a single decision should be added to a problem() object. Note that if multiple decisions are added to an object, then the last one to be added will be used.


An updated problem() object with the decisions added to it.
